The week is well underway, you’re probably knee-deep in your to-do lists and anticipating the weekend.
But have you given any thought to all of the hard-working farmers and ranchers throughout our country? This week is Farm Safety & Health Week, and those essential workers definitely deserve some recognition and thanks for working in such a dangerous field.
Did you know…
It’s the most dangerous work sector in America (23.4 deaths per 100,000)
Our farmers and ranchers truly are essential workers
2017 Census of Agriculture says there are 3.4 million agricultural producers in America
During the early days of the COVID quarantine, people were at home frantically trying to fill their time with new hobbies. One of the hobbies that quickly emerged was bread-baking. How-to’s on making your own sourdough starter was at the top of many home bakers’ search lists.
But what about sourdough’s flavorful cousin, cinnamon raisin bread? Today is the day to add this recipe to your repertoire: it’s Cinnamon Raisin Bread Day.
A little bit of flour, yeast, milk, sugar, cinnamon, and raisins, and voila- a yummy sweet treat!
Listen, for the most part I prefer to eat low-carb on a daily basis. But when my family finally convinces me to order pizza for dinner, I like the specialty recipes—Mediterranean Chicken with feta and sundried tomatoes, or prosciutto with fig and arugula. Today just isn’t my day- it’s Cheese Pizza Day.
Cheese pizza is just a bit too plain for my liking. But it doesn’t matter: this American-made Cutlery pizza cutter doesn’t care what toppings it’s slicing through, as long as it’s a warm pizza.
We’ve all become accustomed to cooking for ourselves during the COVID-19 quarantine. But wouldn’t it be so nice to relax and have a personal chef come by and do it all for you? Today is Personal Chef’s Day, a day where all of us can dream about having a personal chef!
What would you ask your personal chef to make for you first?
-fillet mignon with an array of roasted veggies
-a flavorful Indian curry
-a seafood platter
-the options are endless!
I bet your chef would also bring along their American-Made Cutlery knives to make sure everything is sliced and chopped to perfection.
What is your favorite flavor of ice cream? Are you a fan of Rocky Road, butter pecan, pistachio or cookies & cream? Or perhaps you prefer the more traditional flavors, such as vanilla, chocolate, or strawberry? Well today is a chocolate-lover’s favorite day: it’s Chocolate Ice Cream Day!
What will you serve with your ice cream today? Maybe some whipped cream, nuts & chocolate syrup! But first things first, you’ll need to grab your American-Made Cutlery ice cream scoop to fill up your bowl!
After months of being forced to stay at home during this quarantine, I bet you’re pretty sick of cooking everyday, right?
A simple go-to meal that anyone with zero cooking ability can make: a cheese platter.
It’s as simple as:
-finding a few of your favorite cheeses at the store (soft, hard, stinky, creamy- whatever you like!)
-crackers, focaccia, baguette, etc
-nuts, olives, dried fruits
Plus anything else you want to add! Make it your own, and don’t forget to get out your American-Made Cutlery cheese knife to serve it!
Happy Armed Forces Day to all of our active duty military across the country! Today has been a day of celebration and recognition for all members of the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, & Air Force for the past 70 years.
What are the best ways to celebrate during this tumultuous time?
Proudly display your American flag in your yard
Wear red, white & blue
Send letters of thanks to members of the military, no matter where they are
During the COVID-19 quarantine many people have turned to cooking and baking as new hobbies. So much so, that I’ve even heard that there is a shortage on flour!
If you’re one of the lucky ones who still has a bag of flour at home, try your hand at a good ol’ traditional apple pie. It doesn’t require any fancy tricks or too much skill. You can even just skip the homemade crust altogether and buy a frozen crust! All you need are some apples, sugar, and perhaps cinnamon and nutmeg. There are countless recipes online- go find one that sparks your interest on #ApplePieDay.
Once your pie is fresh out of the oven, slice it up with this American-made Cutlery pie server and share it with your quarantine team! Yum!
